A Brand New Day – Audio Fail Day 2

Ironic that on a day when I talk about trying to find and keep a perspective on the important things I lose the audio for a second day in a row. Looks like the new lapel mic I purchased is not going to work, so I’ll be looking for a different alternative.

Fortunately I have some options. Might just take a day or two to get it in place.

Until tomorrow!

A Brand New Day – Working Out the Bugs

June 23, 2021

So I got the majority of the audio problems from yesterday fixed and I discuss that in today’s walk. The new set up seems to be working, though as the wind picks up you’ll hear a change in my tone.

But its listenable, which is more than I can say for Yesterday’s walk.

A Brand New Day – Shaking The Rust Off

So it’s good news, bad news time.

Good News is that I walked, I talked, I recorded.

Bad news is that what I did not know is that the recording app is recording from my phone’s microphone and NOT the microphone on my earbuds.

This explains some of the mic noise yesterday that coincided with my handling and moving of the phone, and why Baby Girl’s conversation was as loud as it was…since the phone was resting on her stroller cover. It also means that todays recording in it’s raw form was almost un-listenable since the phone spent the entire walk in my hand at my side. The good news is that I put the audio through a production filter and managed to at least level the sound so my voice should be as loud as the background noise. Not sure if that’s going to help or not, but at least it’s something. I’m also switching up my recording apps, and adjusting the work flow, so this shouldn’t happen again.

Long story short… tomorrow should be better quality.
